Chapter 302: Love is Love
For some people, love is love, sex is sex, and that’s okay, but Penn can’t do that, and that’s his principle or bottom line.
He refused Joa’s request to send his clothes to the dry cleaning, and he took the hanger and hung it in the room behind the office, reluctant to wash it off. Joa looked at it and immediately realized that the lip print was probably that of the Miss Woodsen, and she was sorry for her crazy thoughts just now. What kind of person Penn was, she should be very clear that she didn’t bother to speak with other girls, so how could there be any other relationship.
“Go get busy.“Penn went to work.
After Joa goes out, she meets Blair, who comes to meet Mr. Marie for lunch. One of Blair’s most gossipy people, the red lipstick on Penn’s white shirt from that morning’s meeting, had already been tipped off by her information station, and she checked with Joa and immediately telephoned Serena.
Blair can’t hide anything from her.
“Are you with Penn?” She asked directly.
“No.“Serena tossed and turned all night and didn’t sleep well. She really fell asleep in the early morning, and was disturbed by Larry’s delivery of documents. All day long, she was dizzy.
Just as she’s concentrating on her work, Blair breaks her
train of thought with a voice request.
“No? Then how did your lips end up on his shoulder? Tell me, how intense were you last night?”
Serena’s pent–up air was gone when Blair screamed at her.
“Nothing happened, the elevator was too crowded, I accidentally rubbed off.“She didn’t even know it last night.
Blair stopped asking questions. There’s no need to ask things that everyone already knows. But there was only one thing she insisted on
“Serena, who’s more important to you, Penn or Darcy?”
“Darcy, he’s a very safe and secure person to be with.“She answered without thinking. She never put them together, not necessarily, because she never wanted to get back together with Penn.That’s what she thought about last night.
Blair asks, “At ease?Is it like when you’re with me? Or like having Nelly take care of your two little friends?”
She doesn’t shy away: “Both. Blair, after everything I’ve been through, you know how hard it is for me to feel confident and secure in people.But Darcy gives me confidence, gives me a sense of security, which is important.Okay, I’ll admit, maybe I don’t have that crush on him, but does it really matter? Can you live with this feeling forever? I want peace of mind. I want stability.”
She has experienced betrayal from her father, death from her mother, and life remodeling from the children, and she
is sober enough to know what she wants, not love that falls in love, but peace of mind and stable life.
However, last night, she found that she was really bad, lost herself under that atmosphere, even if the instant sober did not continue, did not lead to an unacceptable mistake, but can not deny that she is a very bad person.
Blair finally believes her. Yes, love is temporary, and stable relationships last. Then I hear Serena’s voice on the phone
“Blair, but am I good enough for Darcy?”
Darcy sunshine and pure, let the moment she is very ashamed.
Blair doesn’t answer. She needs to figure things out for herself.
Serena hangs up the phone with Blair and gets back to work.In the materials that Larry sent to Betensh Capital Company in the morning, she saw a long–lost name, which was Nina, a former colleague in the Justice Law Office. It turned out that after she was fired from the Justice Law Office, Through her father’s connections, she was placed in the investment review department of Betensh Capital Company.
And this time with Kelly, it was her.
In other words, the person Kelly bribed at Betensh Capital Company was most likely Nina.
Serena flips through all the signatures at the end of the review, and they’re all Nina.
So Penn knew all of this already, but she was Kelly’s defense attorney, so he only gave her this important material, not any advice, and let her decide what to do.
When she went to see Kelly in the evening, she did not mention Nina, only discussed with Kelly the idea of her defense when the trial was held tomorrow, and listed the relevant evidence again to see if there were any missing parts.
When it comes to questions related to the rest of her life, Kelly does not dare to take it lightly, and carefully reads the relevant materials, and finally asks Serena repeatedly
“Are you sure it’s okay to plead an economic dispute?”
Serena doesn’t answer: “It’s the only way to solve your case, but whether it’s 100% successful or not, no lawyer can guarantee it.“Kelly, all you have to do is trust me.”
Kelly nodded. There was really no choice.
As for her bribing Nina, Serena will act like she didn’t know about it.
Kelly does not mention that there is a fluke mentality, one is to believe Nina’s position in Betensh Capital Company, her father is the bank president, but also the invisible
shareholder of Betensh Capital Company, no one dares to move Nina’s position.Second, if she carries the crime of bribery again, it is undoubtedly worse, she chose Nina, is to see her identity, will not be easily passive.So there’s no need to share the details with Serena.
The next day was scheduled for trial.
Betensh Capital Company brought a team of lawyers with them, plus a couple of heads of the investment department, and it was pretty impressive, and when they sat down,Nate from Whale Financial Company and Penn from Future Better Technology Company were also in the audience.
Betensh Capital Company and Whale Financial Company were bitter rivals, and the proposed acquisition of Lofan Technology Company fell through,Betensh Capital Company also more or less knew that the Future Better Technology Company and Whale Financial Company were behind it, and they already had a grudge. Seeing them sitting in the public gallery, they became even angrier.Is that a good idea?
“Who knew Mr. Humphery and Mr. Waldorf were so free?“That’s really not something they’re in a position to
How did the people at Betensh Capital Company know that these two presidents were not here to see them, they were here to see Kelly’s lawyer.
Nate smiled and shrugged them off.
Penn, even more so, didn’t even look the Betensh Capital Company people in the eye.
The trial officially begins.
Betensh Capital Company’s lawyers were aggressive as soon as they took the floor
“When your client, Miss Kelly, first approached Betensh Capital Company, she deliberately defrauded the company by attracting investment with false sales contracts, profit
statements, and worthless patents and scientific research. results.”
The opposing counsel finished and provided relevant evidence.
